I am a 5th generation Texan. Us folks have been hanging around Texas quite a while, just cooking beans, pots of chili and growing them jalapeno chili peppers!
I am retired from the aerospace field, mostly messed with heavy lift expendable boosters and satellite insertion. Also did satellite telemetry, tracking and command control. I am proud to say that I tracked the very first orbital flight our space shuttle program ever made!
What's this got to do with camp cooking, Cap?
I've been camping, cooking and fishing and hunting since I was a kid. I love the woods, and when I retired, I moved out of the big city and into the Big Thicket of East Texas. The nearest town, population 70 folks, is Rye, Texas. I live in some pretty deep woods, about 4 miles from the nearest paved road, and 25 miles from the nearest traffic light, this suits me fine!
Cap's cooking is down home, Cajun, TexMex and BBQ grub. I am also a bread baking fool! I bake all my own bread for the house and camp. Besides regular yeast bread and quick bread, I get into sourdough baking and cooking!
I host the Cooking With Da Capn Club on Yahoo. It's a fun club and has lots of recipes on the post board. http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/campcookingwithdacapn
This club is for the advanced Camp Cook as well as the new folks to the hobby. We have a lot of talent in the club membership, if you have a question, chances are somebody can answer it.
I guess that's about it!
If you have a cookbook in need of review or if you manufacture cooking equipment in need of testing or if you have a cool t-shirt (size xl) you want a high profile person to wear, send them to:
